My sister-in-law brought the directions for making these fun and easy fabric pumpkins. We turned out whole patches of them before the week-end was over. Some for us and some for gifts.
Originally she started with the traditional orange and white...
Since my week-end was pretty crazy -- I didn't get nearly as much time to craft as I'd have liked to. About an hour before "bedtime" Saturday night I got out some country/primitive material that I had and sewed some up in that. I used four different sizes of circles just for variety's sake.
Above is my basket of primitive/country pumpkins. Besides using the country fabrics I also used some muslin and burlap.
Sunday afternoon - after our "other" company left and the mountain of dishes was finished I made soem more little pumpkins for gifts. Below is set I made for a friend - I tried to match the colors of her decor with them.
Here's a link to the tutorial if your interested in making a patch of your own! They're easy, lots of fun, and quick to whip up.
